in and day out, not only built trust between us and the afghans but it gave them the ability to prg on a daily basis. so the other frustration was the coalition effort. there was a lot of people with great intentions willing to help shared by many different countries. the frustration was many different countries, there's many different ways of doing things. so we would be out there telling the afghans, this is how you conduct police operations, this is how we do police training, this is how you hold your weapon and engage the enemy, and then several weeks later another force would come in and not that it was necessarily wrong, but it was different. so from the afghan perspective, incredibly frustrating to understand where they are going and what they need to be doing and what is right and what is wrong. so in closing if someone were to ask me from 2010 to where we're at now, is there hope i would say, yes, there is. as we stand down our combat forces and shift to an advisory and a training role i think we're going to be able to take our lessons lerbed -- learned and ensure that
. so we do have the 2005 conditions in front of us and they fairly clearly state that the business shall be operating as retail store with wine tasting bar. i think it's really hard to support a business -- the business maybe doing well, or sort of a nice business owner, but it's hard to support that the original cu was not followed and i think it sends a bad message to other business owners that they don't necessarily have to follow the conditions of their approval, so i think it's possible for the business to condition to run under the original cu so i don't support the one in front of us today. >> commissioner sugaya. >> yes, if you go on the internet i don't see retail sales and it's operating that way in violation of the original conditional use and seems to me that the argument presented because it's been operating for seven years illegally now it's okay because it's a nice place and the owner is a nice guy and everything else and i couldn't understand the argument because they didn't get caught because for some reason the city didn't catch them illegally, and so much time h

you what you teach me and what you teach us every week and that is civil civic dialogue. i think you're an example for making this room a bright discussion, an informed discussion for everybody, and it is you holding all the strings of what is happening in your hands and doing that wisely every week. i only will say one thing about that picture. that was actually taken on the day when we celebrated "i left my heart in san francisco". >> thank you. >> commissioner hillis. >> i've got the shortest tenure on the commission but worked on the planning commission for over a decade and i didn't realize until i came here the difficult and complex job you have and part of the reason is you do it so well and serve the staff and the public so well so thank you very much. you will definitely be missed. >> it's been my pleasure. thank you okay thank you. now f we can go forward to director's report, director's announcements and review of the events for the board of supervisors and board of appeals and the historic preservation commission. >> thank you. well, i must add my thanks on behalf of

everyday. if necessary use words. i have never known anybody who preached the gospel more effectively in so many ways than george. a piecemaker. a humanitarian. a teacher. a minister. a congressman. a senator. a voice for the voiceless. and a champion for hungry children. in some ways it is and higher need that george's adult life began in war. when asked about his military service he would always minimize his heroism. but the fact is that if he had done nothing after reaching the age of 25 years old today we would be celebrating the life of an american hero. 35 missions in the be 24. as scott said so well last night there would have been a lot more had the war gone. a lot more than one close call. shrapnel penetrating the windshield at one point, nearly killing him. a blown wheel, an emergency landing, and on his 30 fifth and final mission, so much fire that when he landed they counted the holes in his fuselage and wings and it number 110. george's life was not an easy one. he saw more than his share of hardship, loss he fought many battles beyond the ones in the airp

's important to fit it in and it will make us more effective. we did an exercise back in may in preparation for this and developed a pretty detailed concept of operations. we built load plan, timelines, spare parts lists, we really got into the weeds, thinking about the second and third tier effects, so i want my relief to understand that and i want him to know where that plan is so he can pull it right off the shelf if this ever happens and be ready to respond quickly instead of trying to figure this all out when we need to be getting underway. >> i'll boil mine down into just one, and that is i will pass to my relief to continue to support events like this and look for opportunities to continue to learn how we best in the military can integrate with our civilian and federal contemporaries to be prepared for an eventuality that we hope will never come, but we certainly should be prepared for. so the one thing i'm passing on is keep the momentum. >> thank you, all. one other benefit that was cited in the after action review and also was mentioned today is the chance it meet someone else f
perceive your websites. >> a lot of people are still trying to use techniques that really were good ten years ago. for instance, you might go and draft a page where you use your keywords over and over and over again. ten, 15 years ago, that absolutely worked. today, two years from now, five years from now, these methods are antiquated. they do not work. the best thing to do is to focus on your contents. content is king. >> george gill, ceo and founder of gills solutions management, shared the importance of using analytics to focus limited resources on what actually works. >> if i am going to do search engine optimization to drive traffic to my site, what's going to be the one matrick that's going to prove that this is working to me? then you want to go into analytics and figure out how you can measure that. never do a thing online unless you are measuring it. if you are going to spend one penny and you are not measuring it, you are in the right place, las vegas. you might as well gamble. >> being intentional about everything you do online is also something mark senacola, president and c
's an area where we could use some improvement. our forces deployed to the western pacific certainly understand this, and they pass it on among themselves. the forces we deploy from southern california and the east coast that float into theater understand disaster assistance and humantarian response very well. that hasn't quite migrated itself into the institutional arena in terms of forces stationed here in the united states as it would relate to defense support to civil authorities. i think that's primarily -- this is not a primary mission for us. it's something that we do pay attention to, of course, as we deploy overseas. not necessarily forces we have here in the states. we do understand immediate response, rolling out the gate to help our neighbors in an immediate nature, but i think not so much in terms of mobilization and deploying inside our country. so, this is an area where opportunities like san francisco fleet week will allow us for, and i believe at some point really incorporate this in some internal doctrine that will benefit us in the event that this is a requirement
kelly, pat gallager, jim wonderman, we are expecting ron conway and mary murphy to join us. i also wanted to turn the microphone over to mayor lee to talk about why we are here. that is to unveil our logo, social media campaign. we will have rich silverstein, the head of this amazing ad agency working the past month to come to this point. we are going to hear from the ceo of the 49ers, jet york as well. supervisor mark ferrell, who will be our key liaison to the board of supervisors here in san francisco i want to acknowledge mayor reeve and williams weren't able to make it. we are committed to the effort and our theme of bringing the bowl to the bay. that will be important because we can't do this alone. we are excited to work with them as well. without furthered adieu i will ask mayor lee to come up and perform, talk about the first tweet and our social media campaign. >> great, thank you. thank you, daniel. [applause] >> thank you very much for your leadership on this as well. i knew that when we sat down and talked about this kind of little dream we had that you became the per
-an-hour winds, a little better than 300 miles away from cape hatteras. here's what the weather looks like for us. we had the cold front to the west and all that moisture coming up from the south from sandy. but it's kind of held down to the extreme southeast virginia, the mouth of the chesapeake bay. we've had a very nice afternoon this afternoon so far. let's switch over to our main computer and here are the various tracks. we still got a variety of solutions, but most of them converge on new jersey. i want to kind of focus now, instead of having two or three of these little spinning symbols about where various models talk, the three main models, the european, the g.f.s. and the nam are coming in at the same place, central or northern new jersey, and in the predawn hours on tuesday, all right? and the strongest weather will be before the makes landfall. the storm will be coming in from the east, too, not from the south, but from the east. that looks like we're really beginning to focus now on what's going to happen and where that track is. we're getting awfully close. right now we want to check
i am with the homeowners association. mr. crawford referred to us having approved this. that's not quite correct. ten months ago we talked to him and the conditional use was for a bar and they wanted to extend the hours and they were for the bar to operate as it was and not extending the hours. we oppose the extension of hours for liquor establishmentos polk street. with that being said this hearing is not about how nice the bar is, how nice the owners are, or who comes up here and talks. it's about a establishment that has been running seven years disregarding the conditional use. they were supposed to be i wine store with tasting. they have been operating as a bar for seven years. if they get this conditional use why would any business in san francisco adhere to the conditions? they would ignore them and get rewarded for ignoring them seven years later. even the wording, the legalization, implies it's ln illegal for seven years. i urge you not to pass it. make the conditional use process mean something in this city. thank you. >> >> i am david and i have known wil
participation from city, civilian agencies from all around the region and all of us our fabulous united states military, the coast guard has been fabulous in providing assets to protect everybody out on the bay. it is one heck of a logistics program to get this whole program started and here we are the culmination of nearly a year of planning. we've had exercises, we've had lots of meetings down in san francisco up at the marines memorial, this is a fabulous program, we had a great medical exchange yesterday. senior leaders seminar third year in a row has gotten a lot of attention. we have a lot of new people who haven't been here for the past couple years, we have a lot of people who have been here for the last 3 years, and one of the major consistent people who has been behind this whole program is the chairman of the san francisco fleet week association, general -- major general mike myers who i'm going to ask to come up and make is remarks. >> thank you, lewis. when i accepted the responsibilities for organizing san francisco's fleet week, the guidance given to me by our honorary co-c
's over 200 events and parties, opportunities for us to highlight the best of this region. we don't have the details, looking at february 2016 if we are fortunate enough to win this bid. but there is a lot of different events that go on. every restaurant will be full. all hotel also be full. event spaces will be full from san jose to santa clara, san francisco and i have started talking to people in napa and sonoma. they are excited to be as well. >>> we said earlier super bowl 50 is very special. the nfl has been playing games in other countries for the sport. san francisco is an inter national city so we will probably have additional events that no one's thought of in terms of not only celebrating the 50ses but emphasizing inter national perspective on the sport of football. that is a key strength. like any franchise, they are looking for more market gain, this is where it will happen. >> we are going to ask rich to come up. if this group could stay and answer questions. but rich has a special way to throw this out. once again thank you to goodby silverstein for everything. >> i like t
in the u.s. as we work together, we can stamp hunger out. >> and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. tavis: if you think they are not any big ideas out there, salman khan is a man with a big idea. he founded the free nonprofit khan academy to provide free education to anyone, anywhere. he has delivered more than 45 million lessons today. salman khan, good to have you on this program today. when you say the one world schoolhouse, what do you mean by that? >> it was intentionally in chosen to be interpreted a couple of different ways. it is kind of a play on words, to harken back to the one-room schoolhouse where you have the students all helping each other, more time with the teacher. tavis: for those who are not yet familiar with your work, tell me how the khan academy works. >> it is most known for a collection of videos that i started making for my cousin. there are now over 3000 of them, everything from basic arithmetic all the way to college level calculus or biology or chemistry. a lot of students are using it as a supplement. if you are having troub
victory. the other of us having seen we had an aggressive adversary on our hands and looking back what a horrible last century or so, we had to do better. and we did it by this iteration of objectives and capabilities. and we put together what has amounted to a global economic and security commons from which we all have benefited and continue to benefit. [speaker not understood]. so, we have to keep working at it. and i think the things that have been talked about here are very much in the line of keeping [speaker not understood]. niche a was mentioned this morning. that was a fantastic piece of work by the navy. it turned around the attitudes of niche a toward the united states. it was a the kind of building block we look for in an economic and security commons. just as when we in san francisco see not only what the military can bring to the party and help us with, not only how we can interact with the military, but also we say to ourselves, it's also up to us to do everything we can for ourselves. we're not kind of an outfit, it's easier for them to collaborate with us. so, all
me, in the chesapeake bay area but by no means does that mean the storm misses us. it's still a very powerful storm with very significant winds. the models are coming to a conclusion that somewhere on the delmarva or up to long island would be the best landfall possibility. at various times anywhere from monday afternoon to early tuesday morning. any of these solutions give us fits as far as the weather's concerned but again that would toss the strongest winds and heaviest rains to our north. we'll talk with her that coming up in a minute. now we want to go to the beach and sarah, i see the breeze is strong and you're not close to the storm yet. >> yeah, that's right, john. it's a world of difference this morning compared to what it was like last night when we were out here at 5:00 and 6:00. it was calm last night. now the breeze has picked up and the water has been getting quite choppy. it's really a reminder that hurricane sandy very much on her way. a beautiful fall afternoon in ocean city and even though hurricane sandy is still days away, a closer look shows the resort town is a
met october 1 with the police and et cetera at st. francis hospital. we used to meet regularly. we just started again. we had 60 people at least and more than the other organization and i think we qualify as a neighborhood group. so anyway there are a few things. one it's in the senior housing and when i went in there -- really i went in at 1423 polk and did you get a notice? "you can help us. we're suffering". nobody understands how they're suffering and cut to the heart. they have the heart conditions and not all from the bar and some is from the ones in the 1200 block and he said "the one downstairs" and they're not thinking about that and they don't get a response from it. the old people, and mostly chinese speakers and -- >> ms. chapman i just need a little more specificity. you're talking about noise to a particular group who are supposedly bothered by a lot of noise and this maybe only one contributor. and the condo owners across the street and she said i won't ring the bell anymore and the permit and there is someone that filed -- not this one and the introduction and
of making the opt out better. possibly giving us better rates from the beginning or shortly therefore and making sure we're identifying customers the right way with regard to marketing this thing to them so we can way down below what is currently projected as 50% opt out and that is likely to go past the joint meeting next month, so just wanted to put that forward that we want to make sure that we're not rocketing too forward too quickly setting the rates until we have all the information we need from local power and other studies. >> thank you mr. brooks. any other member of the public that would like to speak on this item? seeing none public comment is closed. madam clerk if you could call item three. >> item three community choice aggregation report and status update on cleanpower sf and update on california puc. >> and there are several reports and joint meeting that will be taking place and i will turn it over to the lafco staff and we were joined also by barbara hale. >> ms. hale will speak to the first item. >> commissioners. barbara hale, assistant general manager for powe
adjourned. >> so nicely here, and very happy that all of you could come out and join us, you know, on this evening. my namey. the director of the night rover challenge. i'm going to kind of be the moderator for tonight, as we go through this first-ever challenge america summit. so i've got just a few things that, you know, i wanted to do with everyone, before we get into the program. first of all, i just want to take a minute and have everyone just look around this room. in this room, we have amazing people that are corporate, nonprofit, and government, all focused on challenge driven innovation in some way or another. this is a really powerful,interf people that are gathered here to look at how competitions can drive innovation. that's what tonight is all about, is, you know, the next step in creating a real wave of innovation. my job tonight is just to give you a little bit of background on what we are, what we're tiqp)q)s that we have.roup of so just to get going with that, i want to tell you a little bit about this thing called the night rover/< challenge. this is a collaborat
found. the cost was close to 30 billion u.s. dollars. how we organize, well, we have something similar that you have. we have the national emergency office under the internal affair minister and they have offices in the different counties, in the different places in chile this emergency office request aid directly to the joint chief of staff and joint chief of staff to the army, navy or air force and then we move the pieces to put the aid where they need it. the scenario, the beginning when we face this was the same thing we are talking about in this seminar. the necessity was access because everything was, the delivery was absolutely hampered because of the roads so we have to clean it. water, food, electricity and communications. another need at that time to do that is field hospital generators, housing, sat coms, purifying water systems and mobile bridges. so the force was at the beginning just to distribute the aid and at the end start doing law enforcement when the government declared catastrophe and the president gave us the authority to do that. so we move the army inland, n
fear the government is responsible. they use every opportunity to insult us. >> turkey's sunni prime minister called the alawis his -- >> there is only one place for muslims to go and pray. that is the mosque. i don't have anything against their cultural centers. they create divisions in society. >> the idea of men and women dancing together is unimaginable to some muslims. they sing songs and recite poetry while worshiping. their perspective is humanistic and less dogmatic. they worship the son-in-law of the profit mohammad. men and women are symbolically equal, which they show by watching each other's hands. -- washing each other's hands. >> the creator made a man and woman out of a drop of water. if that is how he sought, why shouldn't we treat them equally? >> for sunnis, such an immense amount to heresy. they generally keep their traditions and songs to themselves. the syrian dictator is part of a related sect. >> if there is a dictatorship, the people should get rid of it. it is not the business of other countries to get involved. we have seen what has happened in the so-called

[ applause ] >> so, we want to congratulate our home town giants on a great, great playoff season. and victory in the world series. so, what i would like to do is share a few comments with you this evening. we were very, very honored, a couple of nights ago to be part of the university of california san francisco community par
, in an overwhelming disaster things don't always go as planned and certainly our experiences in combat has showed us there and prior experience with disasters have outlined that even though there's a well-defined system of response it doesn't always work out. what i defined yesterday was that logistics problems may get in the way and interfere with medical surge planning as is outlined. putting resources where they are needed in a huge disaster may outstrip the ability of local authorities to do that because roads are out. the niche we have as the marine corps assets we have the ability to locate some of our resources like shock trauma platoons, that's what we do in combat and we have experience with that and that may be something that may be of benefit to this process. >> during the last panel, mr. cahen mentioned it's so important to understand the resources that his agency has versus the ones that the military has and he said at one point they started looking down in terms of typing, i have this, you have this, how are we going to respond and get the resources we need to deal with the incident.
what we're actually expecting and that's the challenge for all of us, all the service providers, is working together to figure out how to make that happen. >> mr. boland. >> this is where we fit into that link. we represent the utilities that protect and build the resill yepbs into the infrastructure. we fill a gap in attitude which is the relationships, distant and local relationships, cross boundaries between the multi disciplines in the utilities. we are able to cross those lines in the counties and step up to state operations so everybody is operating in a common operating picture so everybody understands what's available not only in their jurisdiction, but what kind of resources we can bring to bear, short and long-term, how distant those are, what the qualifications are. we have master resource catalogs designed just like fire scope and cal fire in which we have built strike teams from our utilities, strike teams from water companies. they simply make a call and tell us we need 10, 12, 15, it's our obligation to put that together and get it to them. they are worried ab
estimates obama is likely to win 217 of them, romney 191. >>> u.s. voters seem buried under massive amounts of information and claims made by the presidential candidates. many vers can't ll whether the information is accurate or even true. nhk world's susumu kojima reports. >> in the last four years you cut permits and licenses on federal land and federal waters in half. >> not true, governor romney. >> so how much did you cut them? >> not true. >> reporter: in the presidential debates and tv ads, both candidates have bolstered their arguments with a lot of facts. often one candidate refutes the other's information. many voters don't know who or what to believe. >> it's hard to tell a lot of times whether what they're saying is actually true. >> i think it's important in any democracy to have some way to objectively check the claims that politicians sometimes make. >> reporter: now the public is getting help from fact checkers. these experts and journalists check the accuracy of the candidates' facts and make the findings public. >> over the last 30 months, we have seen 5 million jobs in th
is at pleasant point for us, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian, a number of states in this region have already declared states of emergency. new jersey is one of the places where hurricane sandy could make landfall on monday night. already on the east coast, preparations are being made for what is expected to be an historic storm. today, sandy toured across the bahamas, the powerful storm knocking over trees and sending the ocean into the streets, at least 40 dead in haiti, cuba and jamaica. scenes of destruction adding to the preparations along the east coast of the u.s. >> i think that everyone has learned lessons from the last storm. >> reporter: connecticut is one of 13 states haunted by last year's irene, and the nearly 16 billion in damage, leaving thousands without power for days. then hit by a surprising snowstorm on halloween. today, governor malloy warned it could be the type of storm not seen in 30 years. >> have enough food and water for everyone in your household. assume there will be an elongated period of time in which you will be without energy. >> reporter: at the
'all have a conscious. use it. thank you very much. >> thank you, is there any other member of the public that would like to speak. please come forward. >> san francisco supervisors, transportation authority. congrats, you're doing a great job of sacking the job all in the quality of life in san francisco. it's a perfect time right now to get away with absolutely anything in city hall. you've got the sunshine ordinance, quietly paid off and snoozing. not even paying attention. why, you could put al-qaeda out here on the transportation authority and you could probably get away with it. because you've got the whole system rapped up. eth ethics commission, brown act. whichever way you want to go, san franciscans, we're ramming this down your throat. why? it's not about democracy, it's about communism. we tell you as a dictatorship what we think is best for you regardless of what the people voted for. regardless of what is good for the city and its citizens. and if you as supervisors and members of public sit back and allow this type of absolute tyranny shows you have no backbone or discretio
. and i think that it is fair for people to put us through... to ask us whether we have both an obligation and the capacity, legally to do it and to ask whether there is a conflict. but i'm actually feeling less room now to do something else. the advisory opinion, or some other options, we could listen on the merits and make a judgment at that time whether we want to decide, pause, or refer, or seek referal or seek advisorry opinions. given that we have miss herrick and mr. shaw here, one possibility would be that we want to proceed and there may be complicated issues that we will want to know on the merits as well. i am not sharp and final, but i am actually what i am hearing is making me feel that we may have to do it, and there is... and less reason that we can't do it in terms of the direct, you no, do we have a conflict? we ask, you know, with regard to the city officials all of the time, who where the situation is sensitive and we are all working for the city, and we have those kinds of concerns. i haven't heard anything that said why we in particular would be unable to deal on the m
